On the Book Cart

There are some interesting items on the new book cart this week. Passion’s Blood, by Cherif Fortin and Lynn Sanders, is an illustrated novella. Billed as a “medival fairy tale” this romantic story is a hardcover with twenty-nine full color illustrations. Publisher Medallion Press is planning more of this type of book; next up is There Be Dragons authored by the well known Heather Graham and illustrated by Fortin and Sanders. I’m taking Passion's Blood home over the weekend and will render my verdict on Monday.
In other news – Nora Roberts’ Vision in White has arrived, as has the latest release from Erin McCarthy, Hard and Fast. Other contemporaries include True Love and Other Disasters by Rachel Gibson and the suspenseful One Deadly Sin by Annie Solomon. The lone paranormal is So Still the Night, a new Shadow Guard novel by Kim Lenox.
There are half a dozen historical titles as well. Sally MacKenzie continues her popular “naked” series with The Naked Baron. Elizabeth Boyle follows up her Confessions of a Little Black Gown with Memoirs of a Scandalous Red Dress. The Legend of the Four Soldiers series from Elizabeth Hoyt continues with To Beguile a Beast. The latest from Victoria Alexander is The Virgin’s Secret. And for those of you who simply cannot get enough of men in kilts, we have Jennifer Ahsley’s The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie and Karen Ranney’s A Scotsman in Love.
